First, did you put on a leagal copy of Vista with a Product Key? If not the driver installation may not work.

Second if you have "On-Board" video and not a video card you should be able to find drivers under the Dell web site under Technical Support then drivers and downloads then supply your service tag or model in the appropriate place.

If you get errors installing post a picture or quote them completely.
